If you’ve landed on this page, you must be a bit curious about My Popcorn Kitchen – who we are and what sets us apart. Well, those are great questions!
WHAT IS MY POPCORN KITCHEN ALL ABOUT?
Where is the best popcorn store? Founded in 2012, My Popcorn Kitchen was born out of a love for cooking (and eating!). We hand-craft our fresh, made-from-scratch gourmet popcorn in over sixty flavors, using the highest quality ingredients such as french chocolates, real cheddar cheese, rich brown sugar, and seasonings and spices we use in our own home. Made in small batches the old-fashioned way. We also like to get creative and whip up specialty flavors featured every month of the year!
Quite frankly we serve up the best popcorn that keeps our customers coming back again and again.
WHAT IS YOUR STORY?
But who are we exactly? We’re a husband and wife team that came up with an idea to start a business to call our own when the financial crisis hit in 2008. The next and most important decision was “what kind of business?” We looked at the Phoenix metro area and saw that there weren’t many popcorn stores. We have always loved popcorn so we set out to establish a unique niche offering fresh, delicious gourmet popcorn. It took us almost three years to do the research, develop our brand, find a location for our store, and open our doors. In 2012, our vision was realized and My Popcorn Kitchen has been popping up fresh, gourmet popcorn ever since.
But wait a second, the “who we are” story wouldn’t even be close to amazing without our stellar staff. A group of friendly, knowledgeable people dedicated to treating our customers to a premier popcorn experience.

Our slogan is Flavors Popped Fresh! Our mission is to deliver a popcorn experience that keeps our customers coming back for more. We’re chef-driven foodies with a passion for creating amazing flavors of popcorn. We won’t skimp on ingredients, quality and freshness.

How Do You Make Your Gourmet Popcorn Flavors?
Every flavor we make is prepared from start-to-finish in our kitchen. We begin with the popping. Extra large, crisp kernels with a full-bodied flavor grown in the U.S.A. which are full of good-for-you fiber and antioxidants. From there, the popped corn goes into one of our specialized pieces of equipment, depending on the flavor we want to create:
The Caramelizer is used to make our delicious caramel popcorn flavors, caramels with nuts flavors and fruit popcorn flavors. We also use these flavors as the base for our chocolate flavors.
The Cheese Maker
The Cheese Maker is used to make our savory cheese popcorn flavors.
Buttery and Low Salt
Not only is our Popper used to make all our popcorn but also to make our Buttery and Low Salt flavors and our two Kettle flavors.

Here’s What Our Customers Are Saying
This place is wonderful. I’ve lived in the area for a while and finally stopped in yesterday to pick up some bags as a gift. Although there were a few customers ahead of me when I walked in, I was acknowledged and welcomed by Ashley and she gave me a menu to peruse. I sampled the Southwest Jalapeño and Puppy Chow, the latter of which I didn’t care for. I ordered junior sizes of Buttery, Kettle, and the Sonoran blend (White Cheddar, Kettle, and Southwest Jalapeño). I gave the first two bags to my friend and brought the Sonoran blend home to enjoy.
I like that they have 60 regular flavors and with seasonal flavors, up to 120! All of them can be found on their print menu and on their website. I only wish I had more time because I would’ve sampled other flavors and bought more. I will have to stop by again and try more of their cheese and chocolate flavors (which are at a premium price). Prices were as expected for gourmet popcorn and they make for unique gifts.

Try it you’ll like it! I love popcorn. They’ll let you try any flavor. I think they have like 80 kinds…it’s crazy. I’m not a huge sweet popcorn fan but I did like the Butterfinger popcorn. My favorites are the Salt and Vinegar, Ranch and the Sour Cream/Chive. The Beer Cheddar is pretty good but personally, I like the other flavors better. It makes a nice gift you can go all out with a tin or even just a single bag.

Great find!! We stumbled across this little gem, as I love popcorn and noticed the sign driving down Scottsdale Road. So glad I did!
You enter this cute store and they hand you a menu of the different types of popcorn they have. They use different corn for different flavors and you can taste the love (as you sample the different flavors).
The prices are reasonable, and I have even started bringing our out of town guests there as part of their orientation to the area.
Delicious fresh popcorn!! I love this place!

Wow!!! What a surprise. I thought this was gonna be a one-time thing. NOW I keep a stock of this popcorn at home. It’s the best I’ve had! I think they have over 60 flavors and I still can’t get over how amazing the Garlic Parmesan popcorn tastes! Definitely my favorite. I’ve started buying for clients and it’s been rewarding to get the phone calls or see their faces when they try it. A top pick for all occasions! I’ll be sending this to all my local and international clients for the holidays this year.
